Twinkle Twinkle Evening Star

Twinkle twinkle evening star
You look so lonely shinning all alone
As I gently strum on my guitar
You're in a far away place no one could ever call home

And then suddenly other stars come into view
Now you have company a million or two
Funny how they look a lot like you
But in the silence of far away they're lonely too

Guess I wasn't much company
I see you but you don't see me
All the same I offer you a song with my guitar
Twinkle twinkle evening star

It's Best I Tell Her Lies

It's best she doesn't love me
It's best she doesn't care
Cause I'll never be rich and famous
Not even debonair

It's best she doesn't talk to me
And look at me with her blue eyes
Cause if she did I'd keep falling in love with her
It's best I tell her lies

It's best she doesn't walk beside me
Cause I'm not tall dark and handsome you see
It's best she doesn't see my car it's very out of style
An Elcamino 1983

It's best she forgets me
I won't be coming round
There are reasons I have lots of alibies
I think you get the picture now it's best I tell her lies

A Different Time Of The Day

I came through your town at a different time of the day
It was getting late darkness was just a stones throw away
And God seemed so close to me his spirit was revealing

Through fading clouds a flickering star in the sky
I noticed your Wednesday evening service had began
As I slowly drove by

The door was open and a light was burning
I knew that soon humble people would begin to pray
I came through your town at a different time of the day

Cousins

I like my cousins they all like me
They're the best cousins that ever could be
They've all got medals for good behavior
And they are humble naturally

They're all good lookin' with hearts of gold
And talk of bravery there's none so bold
The friendliest people in this world
But of course I'm just talking about the girls

And now they love me even more after reading this
I know their day now will be so bliss
This is what good cousins should always do
Unto to others so I'll start with you

Just Part Of The Crowd

Hello friends and strangers
Been a long time since we met
Hello friends and strangers
How many memories did we forget

Now when we hear laughter
It doesn't sound near as loud
I use to be part of the family
Now I'm just part of the crowd

Oh it's nice to have a reunion
But handshakes don't seem quite as proud
Once I was part of the family
Now I'm just part of the crowd

Always In My Dreams

You're over there and I'm over here
I'll drop a line in between
If you can't reply just read this and sigh
I love you and you're always in my dreams

You're over there and I'm over here
I guess that will always be the scene
Be that as it may just a few things I've to say my dear
I love you and you're always in my dreams

You're over there and I'm over here
Maybe this idea isn't so keen
But with this letter in hand now you understand so clear
I love you and you're always in my dreams

You're over there and I'm over here
And I'm not really a king
A pauper am I and now on my cheek there's a trickle of a tear
But ere you go I love you so and you're always in my dreams

The Only One

The only one who loves me is Jesus
The only one who saved me is Jesus
The only one who doesn't condemn
The only one who is my friend

The only one who won't forsake me
The only one who will take me
Just as I am and with his plan place me in heaven someday
The only one who knows the way is Jesus

The only one who looks for me is Jesus
The only one who forgives me is Jesus
The only one who descended and ascended with me on his mind
The only one who has ever been kind is Jesus

Far Side Of The Moon

He hasn't had a relationship in nearly twenty years
When it comes to romance he's been on the far side of the moon
For a long time he hasn't shed any tears
He's out of touch and you know he's not returning anytime soon

He's disconnected in the dark
Not a woman in sight to touch his heart
He forgot how to whistle a happy tune
Silence is not golden on the far side of the moon

He has no one to pick flowers for
So what's the point if they should bloom
He'll never pick them anymore
He no longer has a calendar not even for the month of June

His message fades away power supply is nearly gone
Is it fair this should be his doom
Not even nasa can bring him home
And he's stranded on the far side of the moon

When The Only Idea Is Blue

It's a long drive to the city
I'm here all alone nowhere else to go what is there to do
And this is the feeling when the only idea is blue

The sun shines through my window upon my easy chair
I know when I was younger I'd never be sitting there
And soon leaves will change and fall will be in the air

All my friends have either passed away
Or moved very far to a place like Timbuktu
And this is the feeling when the only idea is blue

How many choices do you have today
Can't make up your mind and still haven't put on your shoes
I guess I don't have much to say when the only idea is blue

It's A Little Late To Say Goodbye

It's a little late to talk of love
A little late to even try
And the saddest part of all It's a little late to say goodbye

I should have kept all this from you
Yes that's what I should have done
Even though it is true just a few more lines then I must run

But it seems I've been running for years
I fell in love with you and you don't know why
Just a trail of a poets tears and please forgive me as I tell a lie

It was all just a fantasy I never loved you at all
And if you were a friend I was just a guy
We may never meet again and it's a little late to say goodbye

Dilemma Lemon

I got something you want to read
You got something you want to say
But you can't say a thing cause you don't write

Now aint that a dilemma lemon
So here is another line
Won't you take another bite

Detectives are everywhere but poetry is not a crime
Are you mad because my hair won't completely disappear
No it's stuck at just looking fine

I think I'll take a stroll a little walk
Enjoy the scenery along the way tote an umbrella in case of rain
I won't complain and when it's a sunny day you can fly a kite

Now aint that a dilemma lemon
So here is another line
Won't you take another bite

Lonely Side Of Town

Taxi take me down to the lonely side of town
My tears I need to hide
Along the walk by the riverside

I need a special place to pray
And ask the Lord to take my burdens away
The skies have been so gray

And there's no love around
Taxi take me down
To the lonely side of town

My mind needs some space
From this crazy rat race
My soul and my spirit need a heavenly embrace

Today that old muddy river doesn't make a sound
Taxi take me down
To the lonely side of town
